Strength




This week's Illustration Friday topic is Strength. I've had a cold for 2 weeks so frankly - I'm not feeling much strength at all. I think the amazing thing about strength is finding out just how much you have. Is it a limitless capacity or do we finally breakdown at some point as more and more crap is thrown at us? I guess it's all about balance.

Great illustration! A great drawing and a successful twist on the obvious strongman motif. It really speaks of all the strength we all need just to get up in the morning sometimes.

I love both the illustration and your commentary. Your linework is so fine, and the colors work really well here. I am finally recovering from a cold that lasted for weeks.. I know how drained you must feel, so I really hope you feel better soon. Suggestion...drop that barbell and get some rest, honey! I give you permission:>>>>>
